Today is the day! Holly Black and Cassandra Clare will be speaking at Barnes & Noble in Crocker Park tonight at 6:30. I am so excited! I hope that Holly Black is working on some new YA material. I enjoyed her Doll Bones, but I really miss Cassel. I guess I just need to hear her say that she is done with the Curse Workers. 😦
My sister was visiting from Montana all last week so I really didn’t get much reading in and I continue to be way behind on my goal, but I am confident I can make things up before the end of the year. Here’s what I have been up to:
- Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynne Barnes is the exciting sequel to The Naturals. I really enjoyed this one and will have a longer review up soon.
- Hinterkind by Ian Edington is the first volume in a new graphic novel series. It has an interesting concept-humans have finally fallen to the bottom of the food chain while creatures of legend have regained power. I think I will watch for the next volume.
- Fun Home by Alison Bechdel is another graphic novel, this one a memoir. I really liked this one!
- The Revenge of Seven by Pittacus Lore. This is such an entertaining series. This installment picks up where the last left off. Full of interesting twists, it sets things up for the final battle. I can’t wait!
Afterworlds was my Random Reads selection for the month of October…That didn’t work out so well for me. I suppose I will have to carry it over to November!
